From your own words and experiences, what can you say is the difference between romancing a lady and flirting with one? Btw great blog!
To overuse food analogies….
Flirting is like an amuse-bouche, a small, bite sized appetizer offered by the chef. It literally means “mouth amuser”. Get her appetite going. Just enough for her to want more. The instant experience of flavors hitting the tastebuds. Something new. Something familiar. Something comforting. Something exciting.
Romancing is the ambiance and the service. The experience of walking into a gorgeous place, the lighting, the tables, the set up; and being treated well. A combination of elements that will make her want to stay for hours and make her want to come back in the future. This, of course, includes the food-what do you have to offer.
So if you’re trying to romance a girl you still have to flirt a bit.
But if you’re just talking about flirting with a girl so you can go home with her that night, I can describe it like the both of you getting really drunk and going to a halal cart at 3am and getting chicken over rice with extra white sauce (no pun intended). Satisfying, but certainly a health risk.
